Yup, Bay City Rollers have had a huge presence on my Ipod while I've been gardening today. I'm slightly too young to have been a screaming fan of the Tartan clad group but my older sister isn't and as such their LP's were played ALOT in our bedroom.
So what was I doing while bopping along to Shangalang et al? Well, on a whim I decided I needed to make a path connecting the grass area of the garden to the gravelled patio as the area gets alot of foot and paw traffic and is starting to get very very muddy
I ummed and ahhed about what to make the path with (it has to be materials I already have cos I'm not buying anything) and I did eventually settle on paving slabs (original huh) but it didn't feel right because there are NO paving slabs anywhere else in this part of the garden. So my choices came down to gravel (booooring), wood (too slippy in the winter) or stone ( we have loads from demolishing the old house). Stone slab won!
